I had the pleasure of photographing the lovely H Family last Friday and also of being introduced to a fabulous new location for outdoor sessions. The Franciscan Monastery is probably familiar to anyone who lives in the Brookland neighborhood of Washington, DC, but unknown to those of us who live elsewhere in the city (at least to me). It was a truly beautiful area with lot of different areas including gardens, pavilions, and walkways, that provided a picturesque backdrop for all the images. In a city as small as D.C., it’s nice to still be able to discover some new nooks and crannies.

I haven’t had many opportunities to work with three kids at the same time, and it definitely kept me on my toes. But big sis Faith did an awesome job helping keep her younger siblings Charlie and Rosemary focused and happy. I could use an assistant like her for every photo session!
